Final four

YOUNG song writers from the region are vying for votes in this year’s Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women Partnership Song Writing Competition.

Four finalists have made it through to the last stage in the competition after their entries were assessed on their awareness of gender based violence/violence against women content and on their musical content.
The DAVAWP would like as many local residents as possible to listen to these songs and vote for their favourite.
Professor Hazel Borland, DAVAWP Chair, said: We are delighted with the quality of these year’s entries and the depth of knowledge reflected in the lyrics that the young musicians wrote.
“This has been consistent for the last five years and has helped raise awareness of these difficult issues that affect so many women and girls in Scotland and all over the world.
“I am looking forward to hearing who the winners in the competition are and to the musicians playing at our Anti-Violence Against Women Concert at Oasis Youth centre on December 10.”
To cast a vote visit: and follow the link to the competition voting page.
Once on the page all entries can be listened to before rating each song from 1 to 10 – where 1 means poor and 10 means excellent.
The public vote will close on Monday December 7.
